This is a common fault with winter storage. Try some WD-40 on the brake and work the lever until it is free. if not you will need to take to a service centre for repair or replacement.

If the brake lever is stuck in the manual position then the drive micro switch is not made and it will not drive the motor.

SOURCE: Have Zoom 220 HMV 3 wheel scooter. Charged battery

It is possible the the battery could be damaged after being stored for that length of time. If it was wasn't completely charged before storage, or if it was exposed to extreme temperatures (even for a short amount of time) you may need to find a replacement battery. http://www.batteryinternational.com/electric-scooter-batteries.html should have the battery you need.

SOURCE: The battery takes a charge, but will not power scooter

This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

Barb the flashes indicate a brake problem. Make sure that you aren't in freewheel. Move the freewheel lever located at the rear of your scooter up and down a few times then put it in drive mode and turn the scooter on and see if you still get 5 flashes If so you will have to replace the brake assembly Hope this helps

I have a Taotao electric scooter not a mobility scooter the scooter is fully charged the lights and horn work fine but when you turn the throttle nothing happens it makes a kind of clicking sound


Not familiar with your particular scooter - but I am well versed with electricity. The issue you're seeing is likely a result of a poor connection somewhere. The amount of power (current in amps) required to operate the horn or lights is a small fraction of that needed to run the motor.

You should trace larger sized wires/cables from the motor back as far as you can - ideally to the battery if possible. Remove, thoroughly clean and reconnect each of these cables under each terminal screw - one at a time. This way you'll know any unconnected cable goes on the only terminal that is removed.

At this point, you should have 100% good connections for all high current loads - including the motor and will probably be able to use the scooter. Placing the battery on a slow trickle charger overnight will help ensure that the battery is fully charged - not just enough to operate the horn or lights.

Good luck!

Tried to install a headlight modulator in a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT. now I have no power whatsoever, battery drained replaced with a new battery and still no horn, lights, or power


It sounds like another fuse is blown or possibly a relay. Check all of them, if none are bad, then make sure your battery cables are good, use a test light to check them. Its more then likely a bad relay though. Good luck !

I have a 240W electric scooter with 12V X 4 batteries of 20AH each. The battery current meter, headlamp, trafficator lights, horn etc work. Throttle does not produce motor rotation.All connections checked....


Make sure that the manual brake release/freewheel lever is enaged as if it is not, this will allow you to push the scooter, but will not engage the drive motors. It is usually located on the rear of the vehicle; check your owner's manual.
If this does not work, contact the manufacturer for additional troubleshooting.
Good luck!

1978 yamaha dt250 no brake lights,turn lights,no horn only front headlight good fuse runs fine


MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS IN A GOOD STATE OF CHARGE, ON THE OLDER BIKES WITH AC LIGHTING THE BATTERY ACTS AS A RESISTOR, HENCE IF THE BATTERY ISOLD AND NO LONGER WORKING, WHEN YOU RUN THE MACHINE ALL THE BULBS WILL BLOW, STARTING WITH THE NEUTRAL LIGHT, AND SO ON, AS THE BRAKE LIGHT , HORN , AND INDICATORS ALL WORK ON THE DC ELECTRIC SIDE IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK YOU ARE GETTING 6VOLTS FROM THE BATTERY TO THE IGNITION SWITCH, YOU COULD LOOK FOR BROKEN WIRES AROUND THE HEADSSTOCK AREA, OR CORRODED BLOCK, AND OR BULLET CONECTORS ALSO IN THE COMPLETE HARNES.

The battery is going flat, or nearly flat overnight. When i am on parking lights, the horn works normal, but when the head lamps are used, the horn only makes a low hoarse sound . John from Malta. Europe


I think you have a charging issue or u/s battery.Put a test meter across the battery terminals and run the bike.Raise the revs and Check that the voltage is rising above 12v DC .If so do the same test with lights on if OK I suggest you replace your battery.
